We are thrilled to partner with Denver Public Schools to present the Aspen Challenge: Denver. Twenty high schools across Denver each had a team participate in the program.
To kick off the program, we hosted a two-day forum January 10-11, 2014. We engaged some of the greatest leaders and thinkers who work in a variety of disciplines. Our goal is to embrace issues that students in Denver face and connect them with global topics.
This two-day event was just the beginning. The students had seven weeks to collaborate and design solutions to the challenges they choose. We reconvened March 1, 2014, and teams brought their innovative solutions to the stage in a presentation to a panel of judges. Three teams were selected to present at the Aspen Institute's 10th annual Aspen Ideas Festival. Here's one of the team's presentations.
